agreement there joe manchin, as you know, democratic senator from west virginia, conservative, bucked his party, also very strong, gets an a from the nra, said i don't think an assault weapons ban can pass unless it's part of a larger package. so he doesn't think as a stand-alone, congress will pass an assault weapons ban. now, david keane said right now, an assault weapons ban could not pass. the nra does have a lot of supporters. keane made the point when the president gets on the bully pull pits, he can be effective. people took it right here, right now, here is what i see. the white house said we are going to go out and really pitch this, so we will -- we will fee they do right now, you see the same schisms of what you have there in terms of why an assault weapons ban according to, certainly the nra, won't work. >> let me just ask you, because the president pretty busy also doing cabinet building. the latest nominee is jack lew and i am wondering how is that one really being received? >> well, depends on -- i think we have to take sort of all -- the 50,000-foot view from these -- for
